Pros: job references, on the job training, possible internship opportunities
Cons: long hours during denver pride fest planning as well as during the weekend of the event.
I love volunteering for this organization for it has all of the same values, views, and goals for the community that i have. I have learned how to be a better manager and leader. A typical day, during planning for Denver Pride Fest, was full of planning meetings, park walks for where the event is going to be held, job and responsibilties overviews, – more... fundraising brainstorming, and many, many volunteer hours. The management is all very honest, straight forward, supportive, and encouraging and all try to help train and teach all they can to help individuals involved in the organization promote within as well as learn new skills to get better jobs/positions outside of the organization. The most enjoyable part of the job is the interactions w all of the community members, building and strengthening the community!! – less
